Scary Bosses and Nice Sprites is a hack focused on both bosses and sprites while still retaining a lot of platforming action. It contains some kaizo staples, such as complete power up starvation, but it also has a lot of standard elements, such as having more than one way to overcome setups. It is aimed at both experimented standard players and kaizo begginers. The hack contains a total of 10 exits, with 4 custom-coded unique bosses.
Story: Bowser has summoned enemies from different dimensions to defeat Mario. Make sure to kick them out of the Mushroom Kingdom!

Absolutely love this hack from beginning to end. The levels are tough but fair. The music is banging! Beat the boss on the original upload and the update. That updated boss was rough lol.
